When Jane calls Mitch and tells him to get Lindsay from the police, she tells him that she's being held at "...the Old Town precinct station." Chicago does not have police precincts; instead, there are area divisions subdivided into 25 districts. The districts do have names (although there is no Old Town district) but local people are just as likely to refer to them by number. See more »
Average film. Very routine formula film about a disaster.
There a few things going for it, and a few things against it.
Against it are the settings. Too many city shots, with buildings, motor vehicles, people in suits and ties, all that which makes for dull spectacle. There are some very trite situations, the young lady not taken seriously by a trite bespectacled wimp, the fascination with computers, the power plays that bore most people, the predictable outcome of the storm chasing moron.
For it, while the characters at first begin to sink into stereotypes, each one is brought out with at least one saving grace. Not sure if this saves the film, but it does show some semblance of style and intent to keep it from being too silly. We aren't left with too many predictable and trite results, and it still has entertainment value.
